Riesling 2021 – Black Market Deal #38175
- Fresh, juicy
- Clare Valley
When one of the Clare Valley’s best winemakers tells us he’s got some riesling for us, we jump to attention. After our first taste, we jumped even higher. It’s everything you would want from the variety that makes Clare famous. It’s crisp, textural, bright, laser sharp and the tiniest bit rich. The fruit is of that classic riesling profile with an array of citrus spanning from meyer lemon to key lime to grapefruit and even mandarin. We’re loving it and can’t wait for you to as well.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
“This winemaker has helped put other Clare Valley wineries on the map, but these days, he’s making some cracking riesling under his own label (one of them being this wine). This riesling hits all those Clare notes with bright citrusy fruit, laser sharp acidity and just a touch of richness. Certainly a Sunday lunch wine.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Riesling lovers need look no further. If there was ever a shrine to the rizza gods then it would be in the Clare. But go beyond the pristine, dry and steely whites that made the region world famous, and you’ll find some special reds worthy of attention. Shiraz and cabernet are among the frontrunners, with examples from Kilikanoon, Jim Barry, Leasingham, Tim Adams and Skillogalee regularly receiving top marks from Sir Halliday. There’s also some pretty smart grenache, cabernet franc and cabernet malbec coming out of the region too. So if you’re into plummy, well structured red wine styles, then you’ll find rich pickings here.
